Backstage Hotel Amsterdam
Backstage Hotel is one for those who like to rock. Aimed at people in the music industry and with a rock 'n' roll theme carried on throughout the hotel, the atmosphere is, as the name suggests, like being backstage at a venue. You don't have to be in a band or have a VIP pass to get into this Backstage though. As with all Leidseplein hotels, the Backstage Hotel is right in the centre of Amsterdam's nightlife; music lovers will be near popular venues Melkweg and Paradiso, as well as Bourbon Street blues club and more bars than you could shake a drum stick at.
Visitors can get to Leidseplein by taking trams 1, 2 or 5 from Centraal Station. From here, walk south towards Vondelpark and take a right onto Marnixstraat. A quick jaunt along here will bring you past Melkweg's café and gallery and across the first canal you meet, Leidsegracht. Backstage Hotel is clearly visible on the corner, the entrance can be found on the right hand side; just ring the bell.
